to mulholland in the pits of the cme and stephen sacks telling us the best place to put our money along with john buckingham who tells us why he is not worried about the fiscal cliff, or i coined this one, cliffmaca. i am not getting a courtesy laugh from to mulholland. tell me what the pits were like, david has mentioned last night neil cavuto was right here, saying there is not going to be a vote because there's so much infighting with republicans, futures were plummeting. this could have been a much uglier day but what happened? >> it was the global trading overnight and opened up. the volume was fairly light but the news was a shock so we got a steep drop. barista lot error of optimism as we get something done but based on the view, a lot of traders are taking this optimism as a sign that should necessitate caution. instead, just because this mandate of the election was really for a compromise, for obama to move to the middle, both sides move to the middle and very far apart. dave: we also have the debt ceiling negotiation coming up. after what we saw with plan b i don't know of neg

]. >> stephen taylor, [speaker not understood]. >>> good evening. my name is stephen tabor. central task force, i'm also the transportation chair for russian hill neighbors. you'll be hearing from russian hill neighbor president so i will confine my remarks to spur. spur has supported this project vigorously since its inception. we have supported the four corridors plan which is based on this project, encompasses two of the four corridors. our major criticism against this project that we have had for some time is it doesn't go far enough. it needs to be extended so that it encompasses the entire north beach corridor. and our principal aim is to make sure that whatever happens does not preclude the extension. we are working very closely with mta and others to begin the study for the extension. we strongly support option number 4, which by the way, contrary to what the previous speaker said, was overwhelmingly supported at the meeting, citizens meeting on the 19th. only a small number of people supported option 2. most of the people there also supported -- people there also voted that they wante

into the last shopping weekend before christmas, and stephen bebis is the ceo of brookstone and joins us now on how the holiday season has been shaping up. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> before we get into the holiday season, i need to admit something. i am the guy who sits in those chairs in the airport, you know how you have them in your -- in your store? >> yeah. >> and the massage chairs. and i wonder, do you sell those chairs? i know they're for sale. but how many of those chairs do you sell in a given year? >> we actually sell thousands of those chairs. it's one of our strongest items in our stores. our sales are up over 20% in shares this year alone. >> but you were mad when it just stopped and you were like, this is a mis -- i thought there was more. >> no. i get mad when the brookstone guy comes over and says you've been sitting in that chair for probably too long. and i haven't bought anything yet. >> well, we like you trying the chairs. we like to demonstrate those chairs. because once you sit in a brookstone chair, you're going to want one. they're fantastic. >> for not

that is needed. ambassador stephens was a proud californian. -- stevens was a proud californian. i will get to my question. i guess i will ask it straight out -- do you plan in the next budget to request funding levels that are necessary for protecting all of our facilities? >> the answer to that is yes, senator. i am aware that we are under constraints. i remind the committee that for everything we do at the state department, that includes protecting overt 275 locations around the world, the assistance we provide including to israel, everything we do at the state department is less than 1% of our federal budget. >> my question is, are you going to submit to us the plan and the money request do believe you need and paying attention to fiscal constraints? will that be what you truly believe? because i hope so. you cannot count on us to know what the needs are. >> there is no question. we have been ordered to come to congress and the med the 2013 budget requests -- and amend the 2013 budget requests. to add money for our construction costs and to increase diplomatic security for about 5%. we are in

ways. we appreciate your service. and remember ambassador stephens as the hallmark of foreign services is about. our challenge here at home and abroad in the context of terrorism is that the terrorists have to only be lucky once. we have to get it right 100% of the time. it's a heavy burden. not an easy one. obviously this time we didn't get it right. but state acknowledges where it made a mistake, but i find it extraordinary is congress is always very good at doing is only casting blame on one side but never seeming to take any responsibility of its own. and i hear voices that will not accept responsibility. i hear about eighteen accountable review boards. i don't believe it's in this administration eighteen accountability review boards. ic it might be the first, if i'm not mistaken. it's going back over administration, and you can't even implement all of accountability review boards if one of the recommendation is significant part is about resources, and you don't have the resources provided by the congress to meet those recommendations. so i think that we need to take this in the

that connection. so the whole idea you bring up, stephen, that you believe that -- to connect the taxes they are paying with what they are getting in some respects, i agree with you and that is one of the challenges. on the first point, i take exception to you saying that my request for raising the cap on social security is a knee-jerk reaction. knee-jerk reaction is a description of somebody just sort of making a decision without thinking about it. i have put a lot of thought on the issue. you and i may disagree on the best solution but i put a lot of thought into it and i think it is the best solution. it may be a solution i am not successful at achieving in terms of a final deal. but if you want to look at the long-term solvency of social security, it is a great way to address it. >> -- host: just a few thoughts, first from our facebook page from a viewer. guest: on the first point about dreams versus reality, i think that what happened last night on capitol hill, the house republican conference will, in fact, help folks realize that it is going to take a bipartisan bill. you can't r
